This plasma applet shows trending topics from Twitter. It can also show a description for trends from whatthetrend.com. Clicking on the trending topic opens a browser pointing to a customisable search url (defaulting to Twitter Search).

It depends on Qjson (http://qjson.sourceforge.net). Detailed install instructions can be found in the README file.

I've voted up for it, but you really should consider repackaging it - what you've done is known as 'tar-bomb'. I'll explain - i have a folder Public,where allmy downloaded and self-compiled stuff resides in it's own dir. And every single package, when i use 'tar xvf <packagename>.tar.bz2' creates it''s own directory and extracts it's files into it. Your package extracted all it's elements into the Public. So, not only had i to clean my Public directory from that trash, but also had to create a dir manually, copy your package and "explode" it there.
In other words, instead of creating your package with 'tar cjf microtrends-0.1.tar.bz2 microtrends/' and you'll be fine.
And yeah, i'm working on a plasmoid that uses qjson too, and should have very similar appearance. So far i had difficulties with the appearance (the 'backend' seem to work fine), so i wanted to have a look at the sources o your plasmoid. Maybe i'll use some ideas :)

Sorry about that, I created the archive wit git's archive command and didn't realize I had to use the --prefix argument. I just uploaded the fixed tarball.

When I build packages for openSUSE in the openSUSE Build Service, the rpm build checks there complain about a no-return-in-nonvoid-function:


I: Program returns random data in a function
E: plasmoid-microtrends no-return-in-nonvoid-function /usr/src/packages/BUILD/microtrends/trendmodel.cpp:63

This error/warning prevents the built packages from getting published.

I have written a little patch, that works for me, but I do not know, if it is correct, because my C++ is really poor. ;-)


The microtrends version is 0.5.1.

My openSUSE packages can be found here:

Thanks for the feedback and for packaging. I somehow forgot to remove this, because the switch-clause isn't really neccessary anymore, and I didn't get any compiler warnings.

I just uploaded a new version and I hope it compiles now

Yes, the warning has gone. :) The new version is committed to the openSUSE Build Service, where soon new packages will be available.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
